Science in the Park Photography Competition for BOP Students
Bay of Plenty students in Years 7 to 13 were invited to take part in Scion's Science in the Park Open Day by using their cameras to showcase science.
Images were judged on their technical and artistic merit, in one of two categories:
Science - capturing the wonder and magic of science - any aspect of a scientific process or discovery. Photographers could collaborate with science students to decide on a science process or project to photograph within the laboratory or in the outside environment.Forestry - capturing the beauty and majesty of forest trees - depicting a tree or trees growing in an exotic or indigenous forest in New Zealand.
